Dear Abby: Meeting ‘good guy’ online requires serious search


Happy Husband In Miami

Dear Abby: “Where Are the Good Guys?” says she’s “not beautiful by any means,” and that means meeting good guys won’t happen. That is SO not the case!

I was a homecoming queen and have always been attractive, but many of the men I dated married plainer women because they were looking for wife-and-mother types and not a high-maintenance beauty queen. You don’t meet the “right” men because of your looks; you meet them in the right PLACES where you have common interests — church, volunteer work and all the other places that Dear Abby keeps telling folks about!

Ruth In Virginia

Dear Abby: When I was younger, I had problems with low self-esteem and also engaged in a series of meaningless relationships. From past experience, I strongly encourage this lady to have herself checked for STDs if she had unprotected sex with any of these men. Making sure you protect your health is a major step in learning to love and care for yourself. Also, when Mr. Right does come along, she won’t have to worry about her health status hanging over her head.

Have Really Been There In Denver

Dear Abby: I’m a “good guy,” and there are many other guys like me. If she would put in the time and effort to talk to one of us, get to know us, she will find what she’s looking for. I am so sick of women saying they want a nice guy and then running in the opposite direction. Her words say one thing, but her actions say something else.
